Students at Clayton A. Bouton High School in Voorheesville were among those who made 2,000 valentines distributed to area nursing homes by State Senator Michelle HInchey, standing in front. “From pop-ups to poems, the students engaged their creative side to show their love and concern for our cherished senior residents,” said Lori Richmand, a secretary at the school. “Several students wished to participate because they have not seen their own grandparents in months and miss them tremendously.” Clayton A. Bouton High School Senior Madilyn Delisle said, “I just wanted to make sure everyone got one. It was a rough year and I wanted to be able to help in any way possible.” Among the 17 schools participating in the project were: Westmere, Guilderland, and Pine Bush elementary schools and Guilderland High School, all in Guilderland, and Voorheesville Middle School.
